Comments for the Good of the Board: Mr. Candarella said the request for proposals, regarding the revision of the Master Plan, was published in the local papers. At a future meeting, the responding applicants and their fees should be reviewed by the Board before presenting their recommendation to the Council. Mr. Mancino asked Mr. Candarella for a copy of the specs. Mr. Mancino will pick them up at the Clerks’ office. Mr. Corcione will be unable to attend the September meeting.
Mr. Lepore requested the Board attorney, and all Board members, to attend the September 4, 2008 (at ) workshop meeting. One of the matters to discuss is the procedure to bifurcate a pending application. Another matter is possible ordinance changes and to set up a committee to review these proposals. It is necessary to address ordinance changes prior to the revision of the Master Plan. Several ordinances should be implemented now. Mr. Vitale said Ordinances are different from the Master Plan. He stated that the towns’ zoning should also be addressed (for example: changing some Industrial-zoned areas).
Mr. Candarella said two engineers suggested the changes be made in two phases:
(Phase 1: the Master Plan, and Phase 2: Ordinances).
Adjournment: The meeting adjourned at
